The glass bees by Ernst Jünger( Book )

A disconcerting vision of the future. Zapparoni, a brilliant businessman, has turned his advanced understanding of technology, and strategic command of the information and entertainment industries, into a discrete, and seemingly benign, form of global domination. But Zapparoni needs a chief of security, and Richard, a veteran and war hero who has fallen on hard times, is ready. But when Richard arrives at the beautiful country compound that is Zapparoni's headquarters, he finds himself subjected to an unexpected ordeal--one for which nothing he has ever known has prepared him. Soon he is led to question his past, his character, and even his senses. In a world of mechanical bees which extract nectar so efficiently that they destroy the botanical life cycle, Richard struggles to maintain his moral equilibrium

A dangerous encounter by Ernst Jünger( Book )

58 editions published between 1985 and 2002 in 4 languages and held by 715 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Toward the end of the nineteenth century, on a crisp autumn Sunday in Paris, a dreamy young man named Gerhard takes a solitary stroll. Handsome and well-bred, with a comfortable embassy job, he seems perfectly poised to continue his predictable ascent in society. Yet a fateful naivete and a mysterious timidity lie twined at the root of his soul, choking off his engagement with life and making him as vulnerable to its dangers as a sleepwalker. A chance encounter with Leon Duchase, a jaded and dyspeptic aesthete, draws Gerhard into a new orbit - the gamy underside of Paris, a vortex of eroticism, twisted passions, and crime. Duchase quickly maneuvers him into a liaison with an unstable married woman. As the would-be lovers sit hand in hand in a seedy hotel, Gerhard witnesses the stabbing murder of a young ballerina. Junger's trap is sprung: after luring us (like Gerhard himself) into the languorous world of decadent pleasure, he plunges the reader into a crackling detective novel, complete with an engagingly metaphysical investigator. The surprising twists of the plot are haunted at every turn by the presence of Jack the Ripper, whose crimes on the other side of the Channel have spread fear throughout the city. Nothing Junger writes is without allegorical overtones, and in A Dangerous Encounter he gives us, along with a novel of great narrative zest and acute psychological penetration, a portrait of a culture's loss of innocence as it stands at the brink of the twentieth century. That Junger can succeed so simply, yet so forcefully, and on so many levels at once, is a testament to a major modern artist working at the peak of his powers
Eumeswil by Ernst Jünger( Book )

70 editions published between 1976 and 2016 in 11 languages and held by 659 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A political novel set in a futuristic state, run by a tyrant and narrated by the tyrant's historian. The novel's originality lies in its willingness to question such generally accepted ideas as democracy and mass education. By a well-known German writer
Der Waldgang by Ernst Jünger( Book )

82 editions published between 1951 and 2018 in 6 languages and held by 645 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ernst Jünger's The Forest Passage explores the possibility of resistance: how the independent thinker can withstand and oppose the power of the omnipresent state. No matter how extensive the technologies of surveillance become, the forest can shelter the rebel, and the rebel can strike back against tyranny. Jünger's manifesto is a defense of freedom against the pressure to conform to political manipulation and artificial consensus. A response to the European experience under Nazism, Fascism, and Communism, The Forest Passage has lessons equally relevant for today, wherever an imposed uniformity threatens to stifle liberty. -- from back cover
Aladdin's problem by Ernst Jünger( Book )

39 editions published between 1983 and 1996 in 7 languages and held by 629 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Friedrich Baroh, is beset by problems. Anarch, aspiring entrepreneur, and amateur historian of ideas, the aristocratic Baroh is also, unfortunately, a soldier in the East German army. His eventual defection to the West leads to a college degree, marriage, and a good job at his uncle's funeral parlor, but it can't dispel Baroh's other problem, a metaphysical one: each man is alone. Since, paradoxically, this is a predicament he shares with the rest of humanity, Baroh decides to capitalize on it. He embarks on a mind-boggling and macabre enterprise - the construction of Terrestra, an international, nondenominational necropolis situated in the wastelands of Turkey. Soon, secondary businesses are called for: airlines, travel agencies, anything to make Terrestra more accessible to anyone who can afford it. His scheme is so overwhelmingly successful that Baroh is forced to take on help, including the enigmatic Phares, whose unsettling presence and gnomic utterances may, at last, help Baroh to understand the depths of the problem he has set for himself. As mordantly ironic as Evelyn Waugh's The Loved One, Aladdin's Problem is a richly poetic meditation on the rituals of death. In its prismatic complexity, its philosophical depth, Junger's half-mythical, half-political tale becomes a caustic allegory of the conditions of modern life
An der Zeitmauer by Ernst Jünger( Book )

50 editions published between 1959 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 555 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ernst Jünger führt in der "Zeitmauer" Gedanken seines "Arbeiter"--Essays fort; so schrieb er 1959 in einem Brief: Das Buch hat sich zu einer Fortsetzung von 'Der Arbeiter' entwickelt, führt allerdings in neue Richtungen. Das Thema ist ungefähr die Schilderung der Überwältigung der Weltrevolution durch Erdrevolution. Manches davon deutete sich bereits im 'Arbeiter' an."
Afrikanische Spiele by Ernst Jünger( Book )

105 editions published between 1936 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 546 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Juegos africanos (1936) narra el desengaño de un adolescente que ha sublimado el continente negro mediante el prisma mitificador de sus lecturas juveniles. El joven Berger, alter ego de Jünger, huye del hogar paterno en busca de aventuras en el corazón de África. Influidas por la literatura picaresca y la novela de formación, las andanzas de Berger, animadas por toda una fascinante tropa de vagabundos y antihéroes conradianos, concluyen con una amarga moraleja. A esta nueva traducción de Juegos africanos se le añade un texto inédito que representa el mejor epílogo a la novela: Carta a un amigo desaparecido (1930), un canto melancólico a la amistad y al corazón aventurero, una epístola elegiaca dirigida a uno de los personajes más sugestivos de Juegos africanos, Benoit, el veterano camarada de la Legión Extranjera que sedujo a Jünger con sus relatos sobre las maravillas del opio y de Indochina y le secundó en su frustrada tentativa de deserción
Annäherungen: Drogen und Rausch by Ernst Jünger( Book )

42 editions published between 1970 and 2018 in German and French and held by 440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drogen und Rausch sind für Jünger ein Mittel, dem Menschen einen Anteil an der geistigen Welt zu verschaffen. Zuerst ist der Rausch reiner Genuss mit Gewinn und Gefahren, dann wird er zum Abenteuer mit seinen fantastischen, ästhetischen und geistigen Bezirken, schließlich aber zur Annäherung. In zahlreichen Selbstversuchen u. a. mit Albert Hofmann, dem Erfinder des LSD, lotete Jünger die Dimensionen der Rauschmittel und ihren Bezug zu ihrem jeweiligen Kulturkreis aus
Das abenteuerliche Herz by Ernst Jünger( Book )

85 editions published between 1928 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Das Buch, erstmals 1929 erschienen, nimmt unter Jüngers Schriften eine Schlüsselstellung ein, auch gegenüber der späteren, stark veränderten Fassung "Das Abenteuerliche Herz. Figuren und Capriccios" (1938). Es stammt aus der Zeit, als die literarischen Aggressionen dieses Autors noch in engem Zusammenhang mit seiner nationalrevolutionären Publizistik geschahen. Jüngers Nähe und Differenz zu anderen literarischen Bestrebungen, vor allem denen des Surrealismus, werden nirgends so deutlich wie hier. Jünger war bereits als Autor der Kriegsbücher in Erscheinung getreten und bekannt geworden. Doch mit diesem Werk, das gleichwohl noch den zeitgeschichtlichen Bezug erkennen lässt, wandelt sich Jünger auch vom Kriegsschriftsteller zum Literaten. Ernst Jünger, am 29. März 1895 in Heidelberg geboren. 1901-1912 Schüler in Hannover, Schwarzenberg, Braunschweig u. a. 1913 Flucht in die Fremdenlegion, nach sechs Wochen auf Intervention des Vaters entlassen 1914-1918 Kriegsfreiwilliger 1918 Verleihung des Ordens "Pour le Mérite". 1919-1923 Dienst in der Reichswehr.

Strahlungen by Ernst Jünger( Book )

127 editions published between 1946 and 2014 in 8 languages and held by 421 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couverture indique: "Tout en occupant notre pays durant la guerre de 1939, comme c'était son devoir de soldat, il a compris mieux que personne, il a ressenti avec sympathie quel drame vivait la France. Qui a aimé Paris plus que lui? Sans doute dans le secret de certains conseils en a-t-il à l'heure propice défendu l'existance, au moins l'integralité. L'Histoire le dira... Ernst Jünger ne connait ni l'astuce, ni le caprice, ni la violence. Il ressemble au Sage qui regarde passer les révolutions, sans en être dupe."
Der Arbeiter : Herrschaft und Gestalt by Ernst Jünger( Book )

38 editions published between 1932 and 2014 in German and English and held by 416 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ernst Jüngers großer Essay über den Arbeiter wird hier in einer Einzelausgabe vorgelegt. "Der Plan des Buches", schrieb Jünger im Vorwort zur ersten Auflage, "besteht darin, die Gestalt des Arbeiters sichtbar zu machen jenseits der Theorien, jenseits der Parteiungen, jenseits der Vorurteile als eine wirkende Größe, die bereits mächtig in die Geschichte eingegriffen hat und die Formen einer veränderten Welt gebieterisch bestimmt." Jüngers Buch, das seit seinem Erscheinen im Jahr 1932 nichts von seiner herausfordernden Kraft verloren hat, sucht die neue Gestalt des technischen Menschen zu fassen und entwirft einen Massentypus, der, eingeschlossen in das totale System der Arbeit, ein neues Weltalter heraufführt

Dans cet essai de 1954, l'auteur, partant d'un modeste objet, aboutit à une vaste méditation-rêverie sur le temps, l'être et les civilisations. "Car, écrit-il, la plus petite fleur pousse ses racines jusque dans l'infini et c'est notre penchant qui les découvre", (p. 7)
Sturm by Ernst Jünger( Book )

36 editions published between 1963 and 2018 in 7 languages and held by 345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Set in 1916 in the days before the Somme offensive, Ernst Jünger's Sturm provides a vivid portrait of the front-line experiences of four German infantry officers and their company. A highly cultivated man and an acute observer of his era, the eponymous Lieutenant Sturm entertains his friends during lulls in the action with readings from his literary sketches. The text's forays into philosophical and social commentary address many of the themes of Jünger's early work, such as the nature of war, death, heroism, the phenomenon of Rausch, and mass society"--
